Queen Elizabeth II made an appearance Sunday at her Platinum Jubilee Pageant — as a hologram waving from inside a golden carriage being led through the streets of London.
The startling digitized younger version of the 96-year-old monarch surfaced ahead of an expected in-person appearance by the monarch later in the day.
The hologram of the queen was part of a carnivalesque parade celebrating her 70-year reign. The royal’s image was beamed into the 260-year golden carriage, which she had ridden to and from her coronation in 1953, as it was pulled by a team of royal white horses through the street, according to Sky News.
The coach led a 3-mile, four-act parade that was set to include some 6,000 performers, including pop singer Ed Sheeran.
The queen was expected to make an actual, real-life appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony to conclude the event.
